Okay, ignoring the fact you just responded to a comment from almost a year ago, you didn’t answer the question. How is your right to own a gun revoked by steps put in place to prevent nutjobs from shooting innocent people?

I think my uncle might still have one of those, same colour and interior. And true to form it mostly sits abandoned. It’s not rusty because Lower Mainland, but because downtown Vancouver it didn’t get used much, and was always an ordeal to get it mobile again after sitting for 8-16 months since the last time it saw Read more

I’ve got to agree with you on the driving in Edmonton. Alberta in general, really. To be honest I’d say Calgary’s a bit worse than Edmonton, but I’ve encountered the same thing across the province, from GP to Lethbridge. I’ve driven in pretty well every major city in western Canada, and east as far as Ottawa, many Read more

Do it. The body’s repairable but probably not worth it. But as to preserving the manual trans parts? Put it this way, the factory manual is a second generation XJ how AMC intended it to be. Mine has fewer “luxuries” than this one does, manual windows, locks, factory a/c delete, but as a family SUV the ZJ treads the

With a transverse engine, no, not optimal. But when the engine is oriented the way it should be, you don’t really need to get at the front. It’s just easier not smashing your head on it, having to reach around prop rods, etc. It’s everything you love about the CJ’s, but without it flying up and smashing the windshield Read more
